Today’s Latest Football News-27th April 2020

In today’s latest football news, it all about the major European league. The premier league, serie A, the bundesliga and La Liga are all the news. They are all feverishly planning to resume the season if it is possible. Go ahead and read the details below.

LATEST FOOTBALL NEWS: SERIE A PLAYERS TO RESUME TRAINING ON MAY 4.

Serie A sides will be allowed to return to individual training on 4 May and team training on 18 May after the Italian prime minister announced the first steps in lifting the country’s coronavirus lockdown. There are hopes Serie A fixtures could resume between 27 May and 2 June – with an end date for the season of early August. However, there was no formal announcement on the possibility of when Serie A might resume, even behind closed doors. Parks will also reopen in the country, which has Europe’s highest official death toll.

Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said in a televised address that players would be able “to undertake training individually from 4 May, in groups from 18 May, and then we’ll evaluate if there are the conditions to allow the season to be completed”. The Italian Football Federation (FIGC) hopes to begin testing players for the virus at the start of May to allow for a safe return to training and has already drawn up a medical protocol. There are 12 full rounds and four outstanding fixtures still to play, with Juventus top, a point ahead of Lazio.

LATEST FOOTBALL NEWS: LA LIGA MIGHT ONLY RETURN AFTER SUMMER SAYS SPAIN’S HEALTH MINISTER.

The football season in Spain has been on hold since mid-March and government officials are cautious over when it might resume Health minister Salvador Illa has refused to offer any guarantee the Spanish football season will resume before Spain‘s summer arrives. Appearing at a government coronavirus briefing on Sunday, Illa spoke about the prospect of La Liga returning. There have been no Spanish top-flight games since early March, and although there are hopes matches could start from June, Illa was careful not to present any timeframe.

He said: “I cannot say if football is going to be able to restart its activity before summer. It would be imprudent of me to offer a definitive view.” La Liga teams have been given the go-ahead to return to training, possibly as soon as early May, providing they abide by Spanish government protocols. That decision was reached in a meeting last weekend between Spain’s National Sports Council (CSD), the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) and La Liga. However, staging games is clearly some way off, and it seems certain any resumption would mean fixtures being played initially behind closed doors.
 

ePREMIER LEAGUE CHAMPION JOTA BELIEVES THE PREMIER LEAGUE WILL BE COMPLETED.

Diogo Jota who beat Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold to win the ePremier League Invitational Fifa 20 tournament on Saturday believes the Premier League will be completed despite the cancellation of some other European leagues because of coronavirus. The Dutch Eredivisie season was abandoned on Friday and Belgium’s top flight is set to follow suit. But the UK government is setting up meetings in a bid to help elite sport resume as quickly as possible. “I believe the Premier League can finish,” Jota told BBC Sport. The Premier League could resume behind closed doors and is considering showing some fixtures free-to-air if this happens. Jota says that fans are “what makes football special”, but admits it is better to play in an empty stadium than not at all. “If it is we don’t finish the season or we finish the season behind closed doors, obviously we finish the season behind closed doors but everyone wants the fans in the stadium,” he explained. “Maybe we need to go step by step and the first step is to play behind closed doors.”

LATEST FOOTBALL NEWS: BUNDESLIGA WONT SURVIVE IF IT REMAINS SUSPENDED SAYS DORTMUND BOSS.

BVB official  Borussia Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke is worried about the future of Bundesliga if play isn’t allowed to resume soon. He claimed  Bundesliga “will go under” if the season does not resume in the next few months. The coronavirus pandemic forced the Bundesliga to be postponed last month but there are hopes the league could be allowed to stage games behind closed doors from May 9, although concerns have been raised that fans might gather outside stadiums.

“If we don’t play in the next few months, all of Bundesliga will go under and then there wouldn’t be a league in the way we know it,” Watzke told Sky TV. “Of course, many fans say: ‘There’s no desire for it, it’s not on television’, that is perfectly clear, but it’s about saving football! “We are doing all we can to get back to work, we don’t want any special treatment, definitely not, but we don’t want to be at a disadvantage either. Dortmund were second – four points behind leaders and defending champions Bayern Munich – through 25 games when the Bundesliga was suspended.

PREMIER LEAGUE URGED BY UK GOVERNMENT TO PLAN RESUMPTION OF THE LEAGUE.

The British government is keen for the Premier League season to resume in the hopes that it will lift the mood of a nation under stress due to the coronavirus pandemic, according to The Times.  The Premier League has been suspended since March 13, but there are plans to continue matches behind closed doors in an attempt to finish the current season. The government is said to have shifted its views on the matter, and is now pushing for sporting events to get back on track to bring the public some positivity.

Premier League chiefs have drawn up a plan called ‘Project Restart’ which could see matches played again as soon as June 8 at ‘approved neutral venues.’ Clubs would prefer to host games in Premier League stadiums, but it is understood they could be convinced to play at club training grounds and neutral venues such as St George’s Park.  This plan also ‘allows for a three-week pre-season in which players would be training in full contact sessions.’ One idea is for players to be put into lockdown in nominated hotels for up to six weeks until the final matches are played.
